Ask the attraction attendant at the front if the water tunnel is working. It is by far the coolest element in the show, and if it is not working then don’t feel bad about skipping this one.

This was the most boring and cheesy attraction at Islands Of Adventure. It needs to be replaced.

Hated It
Date Of Last Visit: 2015

I've done this several times with kids over the years and it's been a big disappointment every time. Be prepared to stand, wait, stand, wait, stand, wait .. then stand some more. Kids get bored, older adults need analgesics, younger adults are ready to hit the bar.

Immersive, yet Cheesy
Date Of Last Visit: September 2015

To start, my favorite aspect about major theme parks is the immersion factor- the scenery outside, ambiance of the queue, décor on the inside, etc. I give Poseidon's Fury three stars for this alone. It really gives the impression of an old world temple in ruins. Once inside, it really gives the impression you are part of an excavation crew.That being said, the other two stars were lost because of how cheesy the acting and "main event" are. Without spoiling anything, it needs to be brought to 2016. Don't get me wrong, the effects are great. The acting, not so much.I would go through this once if you have never been before. After, just wait for it to be updated/replaced.

We hadn't been to this show in years and could remember about 95% of how it went except for the cool water tunnel. So we revisited and I clearly remembered why we hadn't been there in so long. If you have younger kids they might enjoy some aspects of the show but for adults it might not be entertaining. It has great possibilities if they would update the cheesy video the goes along with the storyline. Also, it's standing room only. So if you have a long wait in line don't expect to sit down for the show once you get inside. You do get a break from the hot sun, though.
